It has been almost nine months since I began this blogging journey. I have learned a lot to say the least; about myself and the blogging world. Recently, I have been trying to figure out where my passion went for this blog, because deep down I do love it, but I haven’t been feeling motivated […]

I may have found the best chocolate recipe ever, and I feel like I have to share it. I’m sure you won’t argue with me! But seriously, I’m allergic to dairy, and I’m sensitive to sugar so it seemed to me that I was going to have to give up chocolate forever, especially because the […]
For the past few months I have been feeling anxious and just wound up. As a twenty-four year old this is nothing too out of the ordinary, but nonetheless it isn’t good for your body to exist in a constant state of stress. Age and societal pressures aside, the human body is made to experience […]
Science of Rituals Anything that you do where you are focusing 100 percent on your present experience can be considered meditation, and it is common knowledge at this point that meditation does wonders for our mental space and well-being. Sometimes it is difficult to fit in a “formal” meditation session. This is okay. There are […]
If you’re into spirituality at all, you will have heard over and over again that you already have all the answers and that you just need to listen and remember all that you have known forever. Anyone outside of the spiritual community is cocking their eyebrows, and getting ready to click out, but hold on. It isn’t all […]
A recent realization of mine is that, I am a control freak. Now, I don’t believe that being controlling is as bad as everyone makes it seem, as long as it is well-intentioned and directed appropriately. I might learn later that I am wrong, and so be it. For now though, I believe that it […]
Yesterday while driving to work, I had another driver on my ass all the way through town. He was riding the yellow line trying to get around me on a single lane and honking at me even though I was going the speed limit. I wish I could say that I didn’t let him, but […]
In my post college life, I have found myself spending so much time consuming as much information as possible about literally anything, and I have seen so many people around me hustling to create their dream lives. All of this is amazing, but we are all forgetting to take time to check in with ourselves. […]
Phytochemicals are basically chemicals from plants that “may” affect health. You’ve heard of them, guaranteed.

Our environment has a lot to do with our mental health. By making your home a more relaxing and pleasing place to be you can reduce stress and create a happier life for yourself and the people who live with you.
The Internet is amazing. Anything we want to know is a few seconds away, but it is difficult to know what is good information and what is not. As a twenty-something, I have a lot of questions and I have a lot of stress. Within the last year, I have been turning to a few […]
I believe that there has been a shift in consciousness recently about the quality of food that we are consuming. In the past few years, there has been a shift towards purchasing local and wholesome food and therefore, more people have been eating seasonally. As this movement has occurred, people have started to realize that […]
Joint pain is something that I know all too well… When I had Lyme Disease, it was a part of my everyday. It was frustrating to find no answers about the cause of my pain and it was difficult for me to decide to take the prescription painkillers that my doctor gave me, and comprehend […]
